This was an extremely informative session that introduced new components of the Learning Center as well as reminding us of the thousand or more free resources available to Learning Center users.

For those who have not yet used all the features in the NSTA Learning Center, this Webinar gives a detailed overview with examples and a step by step orientation of key features- This is helpful for those of us with limited time to check every feature and link, and a one time session navigating through the discussion can be an efficient way to familiarize oneself with its utility. It describes various menu options, the use of SciLinks and Objects, the resources with simulations and the building of community of learners as professionals. There are also perks, which allow us to earn points to donate for environmental causes, and make a difference while learning at the same time. There are a couple of times when the user gets an opportunity to try some of the features shown with plenty of time to try them. Despite some minor tech glitches with sound, one can move forward through these to the next screen to ensure content delivery and maximize time for use of the resources NSTA has to offe
